Hi Guys, I am tryin to get some ideas on dressing up my engine appearince with and without the covers. Please share/show off what you have done to our ugly engines to make them look great. I have just startd using photoshop to play with some ideas but would love to see some engines that are in progress or completed. I am looking to go to some Car Shows this summer and would like to pop my hood and impress. So please share. Here is my in progress photoshop so far, i Just started.
Thanks Mike

The contrast looks good Mike. Mine's been around for quite awhile and you've probably seen it, but if not. Here it is again. Cecil.................

Both cars look nice. It really makes the engine bay look clean. I was thinking the same and wanted to send mine to Advan Carbon to have them overlay mine but I like the wrap as well.

Cecil, have you had any issues with the heat and the hydro paint? Also, is your finish really smooth like or does it still have the texture like it did before it was painted.

No issues Mike. Its been over a year and still smooth and glossy. Eddie at ProImageing told me that I should treat it just like paint. It has a clear coat over
the image. That red does look good. You must have read my mind because I was thinking the same thing. Now if you get it done, you will have to paint
the calipers red too. Cecil..............

Jim, I'm surprised. I thought you didn't go for any of the flashy stuff. :histeric:

Not if its done right. I've been wanting to get my calipers red and install midnight sapele trim for awhile now.

And if I ever spend money on swayde, look out!

Why does my 2011 coupe have a metal plate at top of the blower like one of the engines in this link, but other blowers have a ribbed top?

That explains why I feel so screwed every time I visit the gas station.
